The Licensing Committee for Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames met on the 1st November 2017 to establish the feasibility for implementing a Late Night Levy.
They had previously rejected the implementation of a Levy in 2013. The Licensing Department had been asked to produce a report on feasibility in July 2017.
